my glass covered chicken from Avoca, copy of Westmoreland Glass?

As some of you may know, I'm a very nostalgic gal. So when I spotted a Westmoreland Glass copy of a hen on a nest in milkglass, I knew I had to get it for our butter dish.

Of course, this one is new and probably made in China. Which is unlike the antique ones that were made at the Westmoreland Glass company near Greensburg, Pennsylvania where I grew up. I remember these little glass covered dishes in everyone's home when I was growing up! And you can get other covered animal dishes like Easter bunnies, dogs, and cats http://www.collectorsaddition.com/westmorelandglassmoulds.htm

Google Westomoreland Glass and you'll find lots of interesting finds like this http://westmorelandglassclub.org/modules/wfchannel/
